AUBURN, Wash. – October 8, 2008 – Olympia artist Ellen Miffitt and Bellevue artist Fran Holt express energy in their pieces by exploring different materials and compositions. Miffitt’s collage and mixed-media works encompass harmony, balance and mindfulness gleaned from her training in Sumi-e meditation. Holt’s large oil paintings on mahogany panel are inspired by nature and have a physical presence because of their size and textile qualities.
The public is invited to experience a unique opportunity to meet and chat with the artists, enjoy light snacks, and view the exhibit on Wednesday, Oct. 22 from 5:30 – 7 p.m.
